About the Book:
A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing the powerful and the arrogant. His message is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences! For some, it seems that the rich are finally getting what they deserve. For New York’s elite, it is a call to terror.

Only one man can tackle such a high-profile case: Detective Mike Bennett. The pressure is enough for anyone, but Mike also has to care for his 10 children-all of whom have come down with virulent flu at once!

Discovering a secret pattern in The Teacher’s lessons, Detective Bennett realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history. From the #1 bestselling author comes RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, the continuation of his newest, electrifying series.

About the Author(s):
James Patterson published his first thriller in 1976 and since then has become one of the best-known and bestselling writers of all time, with more than 140 million copies of his books sold worldwide. He is the author of the two most popular detective series of the past decade, featuring Alex Cross and the Women’s Murder Club, and he has written numerous other #1 bestsellers. He has won an Edgar Award–the mystery world’s highest honor–and his novels Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider were made into feature films starring Morgan Freeman. His charity, the James Patterson PageTurner Awards, has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to individuals and groups that promote the excitement of books and reading. He lives in Florida.

My Review:
Believe it or not, this is the first James Patterson or Michael Ledwidge book that I have ever read. Let me tell you this: for non-Christian fiction, I am hooked!

This book was fun to read! It is an easy read full of twists and turns, making it a page turner! I literally read this book in one night. You can see the killer’s way of thinking almost from the beginning, and that, mixed with the humor that Patterson and Ledwidge add to it, you will be laughing til your crying and on the edge of your seat with the suspense!

The one and only thing that I would change about this book is the language. Because James Patterson is such a talented author and I could see that in this book, I over look the language. 

This is the second book in a series, and I, unfortunately did not get to read the first book. However, from what I have done research on, I don’t think these books would need to be read in any particular order…they are good as a series or stand alones. But all in all, I rate this book with 4 stars and two thumbs and recommend it to all the Patterson fans out there! And I recommend it to all those who haven’t read a Patterson book before….it will get you hooked!!
